Richmond Wheels and Castors
designs, manufactures and supplies full pipe roller systems for Australia’s pipeline industry.
Richmond offers innovative and cost-effective solutions in pipe roller systems comprising of wheels, supports and frames as well as polyurethane parts and pipe slings.
Richmond supplied 20 pipe supports and pipe rollers as well as two pipe slings for the Nepean River Crossing (HDD) project in NSW involving 642 metres of DN200 steel primary pressure gas pipeline.
According to Andy Saunders from Codmah, the rollers worked perfectly and allowed free movement of the pipeline during the pullback stage, the most critical time of the crossing. Richmond’s pipe roller solution allowed Codmah to concentrate on other areas of work with the full crossing pulled back in less than 10 hours, including two field welded joints to three pipe strings.
